Funny you should bring up Imbuia, Mike. I was reading Alex's comments on how Bubinga smells, and I thought to myself "Self, Imbuia's gotta be the best smelling stuff I've ever worked." Then I clicked on the next page, and you're echoing my thoughts.Hi Travis,
I think one of my favorite all-round wood is Imbuia. A bit denser than Walnut with the same working properties, but in part it is the smell. The shop smells like a spice shop for a day or two after working with it.
Another is like Alex mentions, Bubinga. Nearly any of the Rosewoods actually.
Ah, so much wood, so little time...
Take care, Mike
Great (or sick) minds must think alike.
